Siemens NX is a very advanced, high-end CAD/CAM/CAE software used in CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machining as a comprehensive solution for the design, simulation, and manufacturing of products. It helps to automate the entire manufacturing process and increase efficiency in the production line.
NX offers a complete set of tools for product design, engineering analysis, manufacturing, and simulation. The software supports a range of design and engineering processes, including 3D modeling, assembly design, and finite element analysis. It also provides tools for machining and CNC programming, as well as for digital mockup and simulation. Additionally, NX features a powerful data management system that helps users manage and organize product data throughout the product development process.
NX is known for its robust capabilities, flexible modeling environment, and highly integrated software ecosystem. It is also praised for its ability to handle large and complex designs, as well as its support for industry standards and data interoperability.
Metal Craft Machining made this significant investment several years ago to provide our customers with best-in-class service. Having this software allows us to machine more complex parts faster, so that we can provide our customers with not only their repeat production parts but their prototypes as well.
A 5D optical measurement machine is a precision measurement instrument that uses optical lasers to measure a variety of physical characteristics of a CNC machined part. The "5D" designation typically refers to the five dimensions of measurement that the machine can perform: length, width, height, depth, and angles.
A 3D coordinate measuring machine (CMM) is a measuring device that measures the geometry of objects by establishing discrete points on a physical surface using a contact probe. The machine will specify the probe's position in terms of displacement from an origin point in a three-dimensional coordinate system (XYZ axes).
CCD laser measurement system is a high-accuracy semiconductor-based triangulation measurement system with 1.0-micron resolution. The system uses a high-resolution CCD (Charge-coupled device) sensing array that provides measurement precision.
